To wonder how often you have a crush

If you're in a relationship do you still find yourself have a crush on other men? And how often?

Do you think it's totally normal and harmless as long as you wouldn't act on it?

Oh God yes. All the time. Currently infatuated with a lovely chap I follow on Twitter blush My usual type is a slightly geeky, middle-aged, middle-class man (I meet lots of lovely chaps of this ilk at work). I love DH dearly, but I am a seething mass of hormones. As long as it doesn't impact on one's real-life relationship, I don't see the harm in a silly crush. Clearly if you act on it (without being in a pre-agreed open relationship etc) then it becomes unacceptable.

I tend to have non-sexual girl crushes. Haven't had a crush on a guy for years.

I have a crush on someone I can't have currently. Is quite painful. Am hoping it will go away.

Oh definitely.

Not unless you count celebrities. Though I say "celebrities" in the plural form, when I just mean Ryan Gosling wink.

Yes, life would be very dull without fantasy.
My DH knows I've had a crush on Hugh Laurie for 30 years.

Others come and go. It's harmless.

I only tell DH the sleb crushes I've got that look a bit like him. I don't have crushes on men I actually know in RL, just men I see in films/on TV or (usually) athletes.
